EDUCATOR PD WORKSHOPS: ACCESSING WRITING IN THE SOCIAL STUDIES CLASSROOM (AND BEYOND)
What is the value of getting students to write? Why is this necessary in what we do for our students? Why is writing considered a 21st century skill? Through this workshop, we explore academic language needed for argumentative and informational writing in social studies by exploring the writing process, the development and use of rubrics, and strategies to manage the workload to assess student writing.
